4.0 out of 5 stars Radioheads Debut need i say more 12 Jan 2002
By A Customer
the first album from one of the uks biggest bands. Fueled by the success of the third track Creep Pablo Honey sold really well.
Relative to the other Radiohead albums this is a weak album, but there are actually some quite strong songs on the album. My favourites are Stop Whispering and Thinking about you, which are much similar in style to Radioheads latter albums, The Bends, and Ok Computer.

surprisingly, I never even knew this album existed until I was shown it by one of my Radiohead-obsessed friends. But now, I have truly grown to love this,and has become my favourite radiohead album.Classics such as 'Creep' and 'Ripcord' are teamed with equally great and inspiring songs like 'Vegetable' and 'Anyone can play guitar'. This is a slightly more rocky album than 'The Bends', but with the same ingeniuity we have come to know from this band. An album most certainly not to be missed. Go and buy it! Now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Start of a legend!! 4 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
There is no greater band than radiohead, they are the most brilliant british band since Led Zeppelin and their music is emotional, powerful, and often breath aking and this is where it all began. Pablo Honey sold well on the back of hits single 'Creep' which broke them in the USA also. Personally 'Creep' is a fine song but is overated compared to the genius that they would come up with later. Pablo Honey itself has contains better songs than 'Creep'. 'Anyone Can Play Guitar' and 'Stop Whispering' which were both singles are a much more challenging and enjoyable listen.
Compared to the might of 'The Bends' and the astounding 'OK Computer' this album sounds primative and dated but its a nice album overall, and enjoyable laidback listen and a must for all radiohead fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice debut 12 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
Radiohead's debut is sub-par in comparison with their other works. But then again Pablo Honey would have to be a mountain to level up to masterpieces such as The Bends, and Ok Computer.
Pablo Honey is always down, despite cheery introductions from from tracks I Can't, Prove Yourself, Lurgee, Blow Out etc... This album with help from Creep also gave Radiohead the "depressing" label which ignorants use who fail to listen to the true noise of this wonderful band.
For any Radiohead fan, I don't need to tell you to go buy this as you'll already have it. As for any new fan I would suggest OK Computer as a good introduction, and then work backwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where it all started... 12 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For anyone who's first taste of Radiohead has been via OK Computer, Kid A and the like, they could be forgiven for thinking the debut album Pablo Honey is a rather turgid affair, and indeed some fans would rather this one be brushed under the carpet and never spoken of again.

However, having been there from the start, I can appreciate it for what was, and is. It holds many a fond memory for me, my life during the superb early to mid 90s of British music, and played all these years later it is still a cracking good album. Creep obviously, is the one song everyone agrees is the best of the bunch, but there is so much more to it than that. Ripcord, Thinking about You, Lurgee, Stop Whispering - they're all great.

Staring up at the shelves in my local Our Price store in 1993 (yikes, where have those 20 years gone!) I bought three CDs that day. Everybody else is doing it... by The Cranberries, Duran Duran's Wedding album, and Pablo Honey. All decent in their own right, but it is Pablo Honey that has been with me through thick and thin, and the one which started my life-long love of their music.

It is very different to the Radiohead of today, but is it any worse? I'd say not - it's still Radiohead at the end of the day. If you're a fan of Radiohead but have been put off buying this due to the poor reviews, you are missing out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound of latent genius 4 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album often gets written off as Radiohead's grunge effort, though this has more to do with the production than the actual music - the mix is generally very muddy and there is little space for Radiohead's trademark intricacies. Put that down to the record label's view at the time as Radiohead as the British Nirvana rather than the next Pink Floyd they've since become. Similarly some of the songs are more along traditional "route one" guitar rock patterns than their later material, which had the benefit of experience and confidence. However, anyone familiar with Bends and OK-C will recognise the Radiohead philosophy in tracks like "Blow Out" and "lurgee".
On the whole though this is merely a very good rock album (and Thom Yorke hates the cover photo). Cultural leadership would come later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introduce Yourself to the Band of Genius 29 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was introduced to Radiohead through their album "The Bends" which I initially thought was a load of noise interspersed with a male vocal that I found myself unable to switch off from. I was not even a rock fan at the time - a load of noise, lots of shouting, so what on earth was all the fuss about?
I then bought a second-hand copy of Pablo Honey - unable to justify spending the full album price on something I was so unsure of. Well, all I can say is, who on earth was stupid enough to let this album go out of their collection? From the first time I listened to the opening track "You" I was hooked. Thom's voice is magnificent and this album has to be owned by anyone who has a collection that includes Radiohead. It's wrong and a sin to own their other work without adding Pablo Honey. The track "Vegetable" sums up my feelings every day. "Leave me alone world" at least Thom of Radiohead understands the pressures I'm under. Thank God someone takes the time to think about life and put their thoughts into a format to which people can relate. I subsequently own all the Radiohead albums and will own the 2000 album on the day it is released.
I was fortunate to see them play live in a relatively small venue just before OK Computer became cult listening. They were absolutely superb. I adore Radiohead, their limited edition stuff, all their b tracks and every word they care to utter. Buy Pablo Honey - but please don't stop there.

Great album - as you'd expect from Radiohead - while not their absolute best offering, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable
I think there are 2 distinct camps when it comes to Radiohead, you either prefer their newer music or their older music.

I am unashamedly in the 2nd camp! Read more

'The Bends' is brilliant, 'OK Computer' is the masterpiece, and this 'Pablo Honey' - Radiohead's first - is pretty good, and well worth having in the collection. Read more

Great album. Very loud screaming-guitar-based rock, which to me is more uplifting than the miserable electronica they degenerated to later on. Read more
